When Mother Nature Cries

When people hate and argue,
When things just arenít going right,
When her land is torn to pieces,
When there are only fights.
Thatís when Mother Nature cries.

When people lose their families,
When children lose their hope,
When play is not a word,
When families can no longer cope.
Thatís when Mother Nature cries.

When innocent lives are injured,
When bombs are only a toy,
When the destruction is irreplaceable,
When pain becomes too much, for every girl and boy,
Thatís when Mother Nature cries.

When people lose their homes,
When smiles disappear,
When guns are toys made from hate,
When all thatís left is fear.
Thatís when Mother Nature cries.

When different cultures are not right,
When people have to hide,
When someone does not agree,
When people cover up whatís inside.
Thatís when Mother Nature cries.

When soldiers go to battle,
When their families begin to cry,
When all hope is lost forever,
When people begin to die.
Thatís when Mother Nature cries.

BUT Ö When everyone is equal,
When no one is wrong
When the soldiers return home,
When families call out in psalm,

When everything is peaceful,
When children are free,
When the gray clouds disappear,
When I am allowed to be me.
It is then, that Mother Nature will smile.
